The consequences of Obama. A Limerick.



“A Period of Consequences.” The phrase is taken from a speech in the House of Commons in late 1936 in which Winston Churchill warned: “The era of procrastination, of half-measures, of soothing and baffling expedients, of delays is coming to its close. In its place we are entering a period of consequences.”

The British economist and businessman Josiah Charles Stamp is said to have remarked, “It is easy to dodge our responsibilities, but we cannot dodge the consequences of dodging our responsibilities.”

The Limerick:
Obama shows signs that fer sure he can’t hack it.
Our country: The consequence starts to attack it.
But Winston was right,
We must face the fight.
On Churchill’s old bust Barry blurted: Take back it!
